Is Creationism true?
Debate Rounds (3)
I assume that with your theory of Creationism, you will also argue that the universe is only 6,000 years old. Using simple math to look at ice cores, that can be dismissed immediately which is basically the foundation of Creationism's argument. At a depth of 1855m, there is approximately 11 annual rings within a span of 19cm (0.19m). That means that within 1 meter, at a depth of 1855m, there is 58 years worth of annual layers from winter/summer oscillations. This would be considered an average depth as the deepest known point of the Antarctic ice sheet is ~4800m. So given that being the average as there is higher compaction deeper (more years compacted into a smaller space) and less compaction shallower (less years packed into a segment), we can extrapolate to show that within ice layers alone (using rudimentary math) that the earth from the time of cooling to allow snow events, is at least 277,008 years old (58 years/m times 4776m of depth = 277,008).
I hope that you do not mind if I put out a series of arguments.
1- Meteoritic dust falls on the earth continuously, adding up to thousands, if not millions, of tons of dust per year. Realizing this, and knowing that the moon also had meteoritic dust piling up for what they thought was millions of years, N.A.S.A. scientists were worried that the first lunar ship that landed would sink into the many feet of dust which should have accumulated. However, only about one-eighth of an inch of dust was found, indicating a young moon.
2- Evolutionists insist that dinosaurs died out millions of years before man appeared. However, there are many reasons to disbelieve this. There are the stories of animals much like dinosaurs in the legends of many lands. These creatures were called dragons. Many times in the recent past, explorers have recorded sightings of flying reptiles much like the pterodactyl. Human footprints were found along with those of a dinosaur in limestone near the Paluxy River in Texas. Also not to be tossed aside is the possibility of dinosaurs living today. Consider the stories such as the Loch Ness monster (of which many convincing photographs have been taken). Some have claimed to see dinosaur-like creatures in isolated areas of the world. Recently, a Japanese fishing boat pulled up a carcass of a huge animal that intensely resembled a dinosaur. A group of scientists on an expedition into a jungle looking for dinosaur evidence claims that they witnessed one, but their camera was damaged.
3- The sun's diameter is shrinking at the rate of five feet per hour. At this rate, life could not have existed on the earth 100,000 years ago.
4- The spin rate of the earth is slowing .00002 second per year. If the earth were the billions of years old that the evolutionists say it is, the centrifugal force would have notably deformed the earth.
5- The earth's magnetic field is decaying rapidly, at a constant (if not decreasing) rate. At this rate, 8000 years ago the earth's magnetism would have equaled that of a magnetic star, a highly unlikely occurrence. Also, if electric currents in the earth's core are responsible for the earth's magnetism, the heat generated by these currents 20,000 years ago would have dissolved the earth.
